Welcome

Thank you for your interest in our residency.  We are pleased to offer a program that will not only train you to be an excellent family physician, but also to be an excellent leader and teacher.  We boast a robust outpatient experience, complete with procedures, integrative medicine, and osteopathic manipulative therapy with the flexibility and resources to mold a course of study tailored to your interests as a family physician.  We provide you, our future, resident and colleague, an opportunity to practice with your own panel of patients, with the support of nurse practitioners.  All of this is accomplished in an atmosphere that is supportive and caring, with faculty that view this step of your medical education as an opportunity to grow and learn personally and professionally.  

We are a group of supportive faculty with experience in academics and full-time practice.  In this critical time in the medical field, pressures associated with practicing medicine are growing.  We understand the rigors of medical education and practice, and strive to incorporate physician wellness into our curriculum to help you be successful in residency, your personal life, and your future professional life.
